The Rule of Luck

3 stars (release date Nov. 7, 2017)

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fun, quick SciFi/romance book. Although the book is set in the year 2950, it’s not really a true SciFi book. Other than the futuristic tech stuff which is mentioned in passing and the travel between planets, the book is at it’s heart a romance book.

The world has been decimated by wars and floods and most of Earth is covered by water. The main character, Felicia, is a tarot card reader that comes from an anti-tech Romanian family. She has her own business, which is disrupted when a handsome, wealthy Russion named Alexei Petriv enters her shop asking for a reading. He is the head of Russion Consortium intent on usurping the government. Felicia gets entangled in the Consortium’s plans, and even more entangled with Alexei.

The book is cute and an easy read. It has a predictable ending, but I liked the characters so it’s all good.
